(WVUE) -

UNO's title defense is over after two games at the Southland Men's Basketball Tournament. The Privateers were outscored early and often Thursday against Sam Houston State en route to an 85-63 loss.

The Privateers were doomed by SHSU's 52.4% shooting from 3-point range as the 4th-seeded Bearkats jumped out to a 50-32 lead at halftime and never looked back. They will advance to face top-seeded Southeastern Friday at 5 PM in the semifinals.

Mark Slessinger's team finishes with a 15-16 record after going 11-7 in conference.
